    Brazil lower house speaker expects vote on Eletrobras sale bill in April

    The speaker of Brazil's lower house Rodrigo Maia said on Thursday that he is aiming for the body to vote on a bill containing the rules for how to privatize state-controlled power company Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA . President Michel Temer issued a provisional decree last year that changed the country's law to allow for Eletrobras, as the company is commonly known, to be privatized. A Supreme Court justice last week overturned a lower court's injunction blocking some parts of Temer's decree, removing a major legal roadblock to moving forward on selling Eletrobras.
